Powder is the best way to set your makeup and give it a matte finish. I recommend using loose powder that's applied in the morning after a cream or liquid foundation. To touch up shine that appears throughout the day, it's best to use blotting papers. Oil attracts bacteria, and if you use a pressed powder for touch ups you will contaminate the powder. An oil residue will also collect on top of your powder, and prevent you from getting the best usage out of your product.
